Krasnogorsk-3 take up spool not moving

Hi all - First time shooting 16mm. I'm attempting to load the Krasnogorsk-3 and running into issues with the take up spool. When I fire the motor, the bottom take up spool isn't spinning , causing the film to eventually spaghetti. Improper loading? Something to do with the axel? Link below to give you an idea.

looks like the takeup friction adjustment has issues. Likely too little friction causing it not having enough torque to spin the takeup spool. Assuming, of course, that nothing is obstructing the takeup spool...   try to adjust the friction until getting it to takeup properly. it may be a good idea to test with a dummy roll that it can takeup the full 100ft of film without issues
